Italy launches €2 opera tickets for under 25s

Rome Opera House among 14 foundations to offer cut-price tickets to young people.

Young people aged between 18 and 25 will be able to purchase opera tickets in Italy for the discounted rate of €2 following an announcement by the Italian culture minister Alberto Bonisoli on 18 September.

The move, which comes into effect with the next opera season, is offered by 14 Italian opera foundations including La Scala in Milan, Teatro dell'Opera di Roma, La Fenice in Venice and S. Carlo in Naples.

Bonisoli's announcement follows his recently unveiled raft of culture initiatives, aimed mostly at young people, from €2 museum tickets for under-25s to a free museum week in March 2019.
